Building Your Home Business On Experience

Aug 17, 2007
Those looking for an opportunity to build a home business, often overlook one of the best opportunities they have available, their own experience. There are many opportunities for people to put their past work experience back on the market in the role of consultant or to fill in on a part time or contract basis when needed. Writing, for example, can be a lucrative field if you have experience in specific areas and have the ability to put words together in an easy to understand message.

A person with extensive experience, for instance in working on small engines, such as lawn mowers, may be able to write a How To article on properly maintaining the engine. A website selling small engines or small engine parts may be looking for pertinent, accurate and informative article to place on their website and be willing to pay for it. As another example, a business executive who fully understands the human resources issues facing many small companies, may be able to have a home business offering instruction on how a company can be assured to be in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act.

Or a retired tax accountant may present small seminars on understanding the tax code. By using your past experiences, you could provide a valuable service to another company. All you need do is search through your experience and find an area of expertise in which you truly excel and in which other people could benefit from your experience. They may not have an interest in hiring you full time but could use your experience on an as needed basis, and even refer you to other companies in need of your services as well.

This can help build your home business while giving you the freedom to work your own hours. If you have extensive management experience, you have marketable skills that you have developed over the years. Unless you were officially listed as one of the worst bosses ever to run a company, you will have something that others may be willing to pay you to share.
These talents can be sold on a freelance basis where you remain in complete control of your time and your efforts and by networking with others with similar experiences you could build a home business offering many different aspects of business management.

Exploring the possibilities may be time consuming as personal contact with companies may be necessary to learn if there is a need for your knowledge but there are many resources online where companies can advertise their need and offer leads to your home business. They also may allow you to advertise your business, if not free, at a greatly reduced rate to help spread the word about your home business.
